No specific Gibson model carries more intrigue and gravitas than the 1959 Les Paul Standard. At first a commercial failure, it was soon adopted by the most famous guitarists in the world: Jimmy Page, Keith Richards, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Duane Allman, MikeBloomfield, and Billy Gibbons, to name a few. The instrument was simply enchanting, from its beautiful figured maple top to its extreme sonic versatility. All these reasons and more made the 1959 Les Paul Standard the most coveted guitar on the planet.
